Subject: Legend of Aenaes
This is not the usual Steve Reeves sword and sandal flick. There are no great feats of strength or intervention by the gods. Rather this is an American western movie set in another era. The settlers lead by Aeneas are granted land to settle on by a benevolent king. The local land barons want to run them all off the land. They try to intimidate the group by threats and violence in an effort to get rid of them. There is a cattle stampede, sort of a rodeo , and a final showdown between the two antagonists. Steve Reeves shows that he can be a pretty good actor when he is given a decent script. I have noticed that the folks who made these sword and sandal movies always use some mighty fine looking horses in their films. In fact I have noticed a few of the same horses used in many of these films. I gave this film a high rating because in my opinion it was well acted and written plus the costumes and production values were good.
